Student in the Milton Good LibraryResearch Help

Full time library staff are available Monday to Thursday 8:30 am to 7:00 pm, and Friday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm to assist with reference and research needs.

Study space

Study carrels and tables are available in the library for quiet study. Full-time students in Conrad Grebel University College graduate programs can reserve carrels on a first-come first-served basis. However, if the grad student is not occupying their reserved carrel, it is free for anyone to use.

Computer and wireless access

Public computers with Internet connections and the Microsoft Office suite are available. Come prepared to save your work to an external drive as public terminal hard drives are wiped nightly and during power outages.

The library subscribes to many journals and other resources in electronic format. Access to most of these electronic resources is available to anyone using a public workstation in the library.

Eduroam is a collaborative network that enables students, staff and faculty of a member institution to connect their personal computer devices to the wireless network at any partner institution in the same way as they do at their home institution. There is a brief description and instructions from Information Systems & Technology for the first steps in setting up your computer.
